Driving around East Texas with Mazda3

We enjoyed a trip to East Texas and got to drive around in the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan. The Mazda3 Sedan was the perfect car we needed to drive around East Texas on our week-long getaway. We loved the look of this car, the technology and all the safety features it has. 

Chicco Car Seat NextFit ix- Newborn to Preschool

*Updated July 8, 2019 -*2 years in and the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat is holding up amazing! We have had 2 kids in this seat now, and we cannot recommend it enough.

Car Seats these days can be so hard to shop for.  You’re going to want the safest and best for your little one.  There are so many rules and regulations about car seats, that sometimes it can be hard to figure out what is best.  And kids outgrow everything so much faster than you want them to!  The saying “don’t blink” is a serious thing! They grow so fast that you are going to want things that last a long time.  You don’t want to have to buy 4 different car seats per child, and every time you turn around your child has outgrown their seat.  With the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat, you’ll be able to use this seat from newborn to their preschool years!

Reliving Your Best Memories with GoPro and QuikStories

“Pictures or it never happened!”  

We have been long time fans of GoPro…even from the early days.  Now, GoPro is even cooler than ever, and with the new APP QuikStories, we’re enjoying our memories with just a touch of a button. 

My GoPro has been with me through so much.  Shark Cage Diving, Bungee Jumping, Snowboarding, Fishing…it’s been all across the states, in New Zealand, Australia, Haiti, and Iceland.  I’ve had it for years, and it has never failed me.  It is so awesome to have all these pictures and videos of my favorite memories, when usually I wouldn’t have much proof of it before.  After all the love my GoPro has given me, it was time to upgrade to another one…but only because of the awesome new features they keep coming out with.  

Fisherman’s Gift Guide

My boyfriend, B, is a Fisherman…like a really passionate Fisherman.  He does tournaments, is in a fishing club, and belongs to Bassmaster.  To say he loves it, would be a total understatement.  You would think that Christmas and birthday gift ideas come easy for me then…just get some fishing gear, right?  But oh my goodness, have you ever walked into Bass Pro and looked around going, “what the heck do I get?!”  There are so many products, and sometimes it can be super stressful trying to wade through it all. 

Gifts Every New Mommy Wants But Doesn’t Know It Yet!

Becoming a mommy for the first time is a very exciting thing, and can be very overwhelming as well.  Where do you start? What do you need?  How are you going to do this?!  Even if you’re already a mommy, but having another baby, these questions come up again.  And even more questions can arise.  How am I going to do it with 2? 3 or 4?!  What can I do better with this new one that I learned with the first?  

60 to Escape – Winner of Top 10 Best Escape Rooms in the US!

If you’ve been following the blog, you probably already know how much I love escape rooms.  We’ve added it to our Top Rainy Day Date Ideas, and our Fall Bucket List for Couples.  If you’ve never done an Escape Room before, you should definitely check it out.  We do them all over…while we are on vacation, out visiting friends, or just want a fun date night around town.  Throughout our Escape Room experiences, we have found some rooms are very well put together, and some…well, not so much.  We have been to our fair share of good ones, and plenty of rooms that are sad excuses for an “Escape Room”.  So, when we find awesome ones, we definitely want to share, so you can enjoy them as well.

Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club and Lodge

Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club and Lodge is our top recommendation of where to stay while we were checking out the Best in Orlando.  Whether you are a golf fan or not, this resort is a perfect place for luxury and relaxation.  From the moment you enter the gates (or the neighborhood really), you feel like you are in a whole other world than the hustle and bustle of the city.  The beautiful building with rich decor, amazing golf course, and all the amenities, are enough to call this a dream hotel.  It’s a perfect luxury getaway with a surprisingly affordable price.  

New Must Have Products from the Chicago Baby Show!

I was invited to the Chicago Baby Show this year, and what a great time it was.  It was on the Navy Pier, so we made an afternoon of it, and had a fun time. 

We found some AWESOME new products, and are really excited to start working with these companies to share their newest products.  But, we just could not wait to share a sneak peak of what we found!
